Meade Starfinder EQ mount

Free! Bought with high hopes, never used with the scope as life took a left turn. This needs to be collected soon, or it goes to the recycling shop at the tip and will be picked up for $10 by someone who won't believe their luck.

What it has:
Eq motor, working apparently well after I installed new AAs.Three rings, approximately 9.5 inches diameter when installed. I assume this makes them suitable for an 8-inch scope. Others can be sourced for different sized tubes.

What it don't:
Three screws/bolts to fix the mount sleeve in the upright (one location shown in the last photo).Screw/bolt to affix the counterweight to its shaft.

I'm not able to test the 12V input, but I suppose there's no reason to believe it won't work if the batteries do.

I also have a Samson mount; will post pix soon. Pick up from the North Shore of Sydney
